Some Beautiful Flowering Shrubs. (S688b: 1911)

Editor Charles H. Smith's Note: A short note with the above title containing a brief quote from a Wallace communication to The Garden; printed on page 362 of the 29 July 1911 issue. To link directly to this page, connect with: http://people.wku.edu/charles.smith/wallace/S688B.htm

    We have received from Mr. Alfred R. Wallace, Old Orchard, Broadstone, Wimborne, some very showy flowering shrubs, all of which are worthy of extended cultivation. The following observations accompany the flowers: "A few of my rarer shrubs showed abundant flower-buds this summer; but we have had here two months of almost continuous drought, with intense heat and alternate cold, drying winds, most unfavourable for a good display of the flowers, which are all more or less withering before fully expanded, but I send you a few before they quite fade."
